I use Flickr to store all of my photos, mainly because I use many PCs/laptop and I want to be able to access them from anywhere. I also don’t want to be responsible for looking after all my photos. (You can’t put them in a box like you could with prints 😉 )
I did however, want to keep a copy of them on my machine, mainly so I could sync them with my iPod. After a little Googling I found this script by mikecpeck on his Blog.
I keep this in XAMPP default folder on my Mac and run when needed 🙂
